Back from eye surgery

OK, eye surgery’s over, and I seem to have
survived it. Still can’t see too well, thanks
to these wildly-expensive eyedrops I’ve got to take every couple of hours (I’m writing this at a 400% zoom). I’ll probably be offline for a couple of days, until my vsion clears the rest f the way, but I just wanted to check
in the let you know I survived (and in time to kind of watch the Belmont States :-) ).

Alas, LonCon

Carol is facing knee replacement surgery, and I’ve got eye surgery coming up, and between the lost writing time and everything else, we’ve decided that it’s just impractical for us to attend LonCon — the Woldcon in London — this summer. I hate to miss seeing all my European friends. Hopefully we’ll get over there in the next year or two.

The Resnick/Malzberg Dialogues #16: Anthologies

NOTE: this article first appeared in the pages of SFWA Bulletin 156, Winter, 2002.

MIKE: I seem to find myself back in the anthology business again this year, after a half-decade hiatus. I’m not quite sure how it happened. I know that in the early 1990s I edited more than 20 of them in something less than four years. Then — although a 3-year lag time on a pair of them would lead you to think otherwise — I was out of it for six years. And now, as I write these words, I’m editing four original anthologies.

And hearing screams of “Unfair!” from quite a few writers.

Why?

Because my anthologies are by invitation only.

Still why?

Because there’s a difference between charity, which is the way I view my editing gigs, and poverty, which is the way I (and my creditors) would view them if I edited open anthologies.

Maybe it’s time to discuss just what goes into putting an anthology together, and just how much money it costs the editor to pursue anthologies rather than more lucrative work (which includes writing novels, writing short stories, writing screenplays, writing articles, writing comic books, in fact writing just about anything but poetry.)

Let’s take a good, hard, honest look at it.

THE BUNTLINE SPECIAL to Russia

I just sold the first of my Weird Western series, The Buntline Special, to AST, my regular Russian publisher. Given what’s going on next door to my Russian readers, I think Doc Holliday and Johnny Ringo will fit right in. :-)
